About this event:
After 1200 performances worldwide, A Perfect Balance comes to the Atlas Performing Arts Center.
Written and directed by Mary Hall Surface. Designed and Performed by Kevin Reese. A performance for all ages inspired by the work of American artist Alexander Calder, this multi-media solo performance follows a young artist, Sandy, on his quest to capture his vision of the world.
Challenged by his father to create a “masterpiece,” Sandy playfully experiments with drawing, painting and sculpting, accompanied by his puppet-like circus creations. Only when Sandy risks taking his shapes “off the page” does he find his way to the show’s spectacular conclusion — a mobile, 17 feet across, that suspends into the audience.
The performance is free, but seating is limited. Reservations must be made in advance. Stay for the 12:30pm opening of Mobilizing Our Community, an installation of 60+ mobiles created by Kevin Reese in collaboration with 900+ DC residents. Free live jazz and modern dance improv.
